German power plug to North American?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just received a Club3d MST hub today from Germany, but it came with a German power plug. (Link)


How can I go about getting my MST hub up and going?




The power cord that goes into the power brick looked like mickey mouse ears, so I Googled "mickey mouse ear power cable" and found this. LINK Would this fix my issue, as in the power brick it plugs into will work with power from my wall? I don't want to plug this into my wall and cause a fire or destroy anything.

it's fine. in the realm of "worse case scenarios" the power brick would be underpowered but it clearly states it is for 100-240 volts.

i am inclined to believe you could just place the plug if you are sure that you won't be going to germany . .

So, purchasing this cord off amazon and using it would work without issue?

If so, I can order this tonight along with some displayport cables and be set.

in short, yes. Its quite a common connector on laptop PSUs, Its an IEC C5 connector, and also gets called a clover-leaf connector.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60320

Thats a list of the different types. smile.gif

EDIT : Save a buck - http://www.amazon.com/WeConnex-3-Prong-Notebook-Power-IEC320/dp/B008DW5YUS/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1376345744&sr=1-2&keywords=IEC+C5

EDIT 2 - Never Mind - I missed the shipping.
